really interesting expose of the machinations in number 10. Shipman tries to be fair but that just makes it more alarming.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes, this is the story of a chase with many twists and turns. The plot was quite straightforward probably more so than the Dark Materials trilogy. I would have preferred a little more mystery/challenging ideas but overall a good read

What other book might you compare La Belle Sauvage to, and why?

I guess something like the Lord of the Rings.

Which character – as performed by Michael Sheen – was your favourite?

Alice

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

I thought Michael Sheen's reading was excellent would have given him 6 stars if available

great book

I was a little disappointed. there is a lot of anti Trump content which I am in tune with but this rather overwhelmed the story.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I don't feel I learned much that was new

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

HIs ideas on what the USA should do next which was mostly the opposite of the Trump agenda

What does Richard Haass and Dan Woren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

not sure what this question means.

Could you see A World in Disarray being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No
